  • L'Hospitalet is the second wine from Château Gazin. This cuvée was launched in 1986. Its name refers to the Hospital of Pomerol which used to be where the château is now. This cuvée comes from the young vines of the property. It is a perfect introduction to the château’s universe.

    Not far from Château L'Evangile and a certain Petrus, Château Gazin has no reason to be jealous of its famous neighbours. Gazin was a village in the 18th century, probably located around the Hospital de Pomeyrols, built by the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem, Rhodes and Malta, to receive pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago route. The Maltese cross on the bottles is thus a reference to the property's rich past.

    The superb terroir, the average age of the vines (35 years) and the low yield per hectare (45 hl) all undoubtedly contribute to this wine's exceptional quality. A single block of 26 hectares of vines also make it one of the largest properties in the Pomerol appellation, with a production of up to 100,000 bottles per year: enough to satisfy plenty of enthusiastic buyers.

    After a dazzling end to the 19th century, the estate suffered a series of difficult periods: the phylloxera crisis at the beginning of the 20th century, and then the terrible frosts in 1956. Despite these setbacks, Château Gazin has not ceased to demonstrate, for more than ten years now, an undeniable skill for producing great wines.
